The Likhts’amisyu Clan would like to invite you to contribute to our online fundraising campaign for our spring construction camp. We will be building permanent buildings on our territory in an effort to assert our precolonial rights and jurisdiction on our lands. We are asking for help from volunteers to assist in fundraising, building a cabin, a kitchen dining and a bunk house, and also the associated outbuildings.
We plan on the Construction Period being between April 28th until May 18th. This initiative will likely start with site prep before April 28, 2019 with site preparation and logistical planning. It will also likely continue into the early summer as we finish off the construction projects.
We are looking for people who have carpentry, electrical, and log construction experience. We are also willing to invite people who have little to no experience with any construction trade skills but are strong and willing to help out with the construction projects. This is a great opportunity to learn new skills off of skilled trades people. We also hope to start a large garden on the site for growing food. First Aid skills and Cooking skills are also essential personnel to have at our camp.
To get to the camp you must travel South from the town of Houston BC and onto the Buck Flats Forest Service Road for 28km. You then turn right onto the Parrot Trail FSR for an additional 11km. You cross over the Colleymount FSR intersection and onto the Parrot Lakes Recreation Site driveway for an additional 3km to the construction site.
